The Russian Federation is ready to respond to NATO presence in the Black Sea region. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Alexander Grushko stated this, according to Interfax.

 “We will study the case scrupulously. If any additional military and technical measures are needed, we will undertake them,” Grushko said.

According to the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, from the military perspective, Russia is ready for “any possible turns in the sphere of military security.”

“Our positions are clear: any increase of NATO’s presence in the Black Sea is pointless from the military perspective. It will strengthen the security in neither the region nor in NATO itself, and new military risks can appear,” Grushko stressed.

According to Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Russia is not content with the preparation of the package of sanctions against Russia’s presence in the Black Sea.

“Our attitude is negative. We do not understand the reasons,” Peskov answered to journalists on Wednesday.

“The situation with the Kerch Strait and shipping is rather clear, it is in accordance with the international rights and laws. The position of the Russian Federation is rather gradual and clear as well,” Peskov added.

I love the international rights and laws comment by Russia regards the Kerch strait. The international position is you illegally annexed Crimea, it’s still Ukraine under international law. And the Kerch bridge was illegally constructed in violation of several treaties with Ukraine. And the interference with Ukraine’s maritime activity in the Black Sea, Kerch strait, and Sea of Azov is abhorrent to international law. That is the international position. NATO countries are wet by the Black Sea. NATO presence is expected. And if Russia steps on the wrong foot, they will be back to cold water ports only in the Western Hemisphere.
